They Call Me MISTER Platypus! – GM’s Self-Driving Car has a New Name, for Some Reason – My White Whale Spotted, AgainFriday, September 2nd, 2016
As seen in the SoMA on Folsom near 12th right, by the SF Eagle, not that there’s anything wrong with that:
No, it’s not sucking the data off of your cell phone – it’s Cruise Automation, baby. And it looks like they’re on the right path, unlike, say, so-called Elon Musk and his so-called “Autopilot.”
Play us out, SLATE’s Will Oremus:
Try not to breathe while reading this Gentle Reader, you know, since we’re “halt”-ing CO2:
I’ll tell you, you can’t not burn the guzzolene if you operate a Chevy Volt. I know people who live in Frisco and are able to minimize gasoline use by charging at home and only taking short trips. Even then, they’re still using gasoline, as a helper to get up hills or merely to keep the gasoline from getting too skunky / to maintain the gas engine part of the machine by simply using it, whether you want it to or not.

[UPDATE: Reference to the hundrum Richmond District omitted. And somehow, I accidentally changed my Canon’s Mode switch to Manual, which I didn’t think was possible, you know, due to the safety. With my 1D, this would be impossible, but with a 5D, it’s possible, obvs to me now. Anyway, this photo was way overexposed. It was all … foggy.]
Or is it a ’65? I can’t tell.
Nevertheless, this ride was an arresting sight, creepin’ down Geary turning towards Arguello in the Richmond District:
All this guy needs is 16 switches, and hollow-points for the snitches.
And maybe some D’s.
Play us out, Dr. Dre.
